100% raw pesticide-free hulled hemp seeds** grown in Australia
Grown in Australia, not made in Australia, nor just packaged in Australia, our seeds are grown, processed and packaged in Australia. Let's not dance around it, there is quite a difference!
Produced by VitaHemp growers from Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales and processed (hulled) by our own Hemp Hulling Co (QLD) in Coolum Beach, Queensland, Australia. Our seeds are Certified Chemical Free (No nasties!) and wonderfully fresh.
WHY BUY AUSTRALIAN GROWN? Recent changes to import laws in Australia have provided a significant advantage to locally grown Hemp Seed. All imported hemp seed will have to be de-natured, rendering it a dead seed. This kind of treatment significantly affects nutritional qualities, shelf life and may compromise the health, therapeutic and nutritional benefits attributed to the use of Hemp Seeds, oil, powders and foods.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF HEMP SEEDS. Raw Hemp seeds possess the perfect ratio of Omega 3, 6 & 9 that is proven to be the optimum requirement for long-term healthy human nutrition, are naturally low in carbohydrates and high in BCAA’s*. Hemp Seeds naturally contain all 10 Essential Amino Acids, an impressive range of vitamins and minerals including Calcium, Folate, Iron, high in Protein and more.
* Branched Chain Amino Acids help to trigger protein synthesis, supplying muscles with energy. BCAA’s are essential in that the body cannot make them from other compounds, and are essential to support muscle function & repair. These Amino Acids are the first to be pulled from muscles as a source of energy.
HULLED HEMP SEEDS ARE A GIFT FROM OUR CREATOR. They are the most nutritious seed in the world. They are a complete protein, have the most concentrated mix of proteins, essential fats and fibre. Very little starches and saturated fats. A true Super Food! Hemp itself is part of the Cannabis Sativa variety which has been cultivated for thousands of years, for its fibre, seeds, oil and as a fuel.
Try in smoothies, add to yoghurts, and salads. The hulled seeds when mixed in a high-speed blender produce a delicious fresh vegan milk.
To make a delicious hemp milk: combine 1 heaped tablespoon of hulled hemp seeds, 1 tablespoon coconut oil and 1 cup of purified water. Simply blend in the Vitamix on high speed for a minute or two until a milky consistency is created. Delicious in smoothies, on cereal, or any other place you would usually add milk.
VitaHemp hemp seeds are the only Australian Grown hemps seeds that we've come across. A number of Asian companies will register in Australia either themselves or by selling to an Australian company, so their products can be accepted in Asia under the guise of being an Australian product which has actually been manufactured in Asia under what could be less than suitable conditions. One example is the recent recall of a number of batches of an Aussie looking brand of hemp products due to a detection of salmonella in their products. (type in ‘hemp seed recall’ at Google and you can read the official documents from the manufacturer) Not cool. (Hemp Oil is a different story as there is a great source that is grown in Tasmania that we love.) What's even more not-cool from my point-of-view is how damaging it can be to the body to consume rancid essential fatty acids that are naturally found in hemp, which makes it all the more important to choose your hemp brand wisely.
